Below are a handful of quotes from the SEC media days and conference commissioner Mike Slive:
-On SEC media days: "There is no other media event like this in college sports, or maybe sports in general."
-Slive wants to "hit the reset button" on recruiting and allow text messaging because, in part, texting is "the language of our student athletes."
-On the playoff format: "Is it good for the SEC? Answer is unequivocally yes. And it's good for college football at the same time."
